Are you an eBook reader? Are you bogged down by wait lists, and getting books in right when you don't have time to read? Then check out the West Allis Public Library's newest eReading resource: Freading!

Open to West Allis resident library card holders, Freading gives you a chance to check out eBooks when you have time to read. Everything on the site is available for immediate download to your eReader. Apps are available for most wireless devices, as well as a traditional USB cord transfer.

West Allis residents are given 10 tokens a week to check out current and past titles. The newest titles are 4 tokens, while slightly older titles are 2 and the oldest are 1. Books go out for 2 weeks, and most can be renewed token free once. Tokens roll over for up to four weeks.

Check out titles in categories like romance, history, non-Fiction, juvenile and more. New titles are being added every week and the best part is instant downloads!

Two quick catches: this is only avaiable to West Allis residents with vaild West Allis library cards. Not a West Allis resident? Contact the library where you live to see if they subscribe to Freading. Also, currently the only Kindle that works with Freading is the Kindle Fire.

Check out our library website for more information, give us a call or stop in the library!
